Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

From the pier, board your two-level, motorized catamaran whale-watching vessel and set off in search of the gray, humpback, and blue whales that frequent the waters of Cabo San Lucas from December through March. An experienced onboard naturalist enhances the experience by providing commentary and answering questions. Cruise to Land's End, where the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez meet, see the spectacular natural landmark The Arch, and visit a sea lion colony where playful inhabitants can be observed.

Your boat will cruise the waters in search of whales. It is quite possible that you will see dolphins and other marine life frolicking in the waters as you cruise. Once whales are spotted, your captain will maneuver the boat so that you have the best possible view and can photograph the whales without disturbing them.

From mid- to late fall, gray whales make the longest migration of any mammal. They complete a 6,000-mile journey from their summer homes in the Bering Strait to the warmer winter waters of Baja California and the Sea of Cortez. The gray whale is not the only species you may see: keep an eye out for the blue and humpback varieties as well. Spouting is usually the first thing you will spot. It is the great plume of water and spray caused by the whale's exhaling of air. If you are truly lucky, you may see a whale breaching, which is when they leap almost completely out of the water.

For your comfort, the boat has an open bar that serves bottled water, juice, and sodas as well as adult beverages. While we cannot put a guarantee on Mother Nature, the chances of a whale sighting are excellent. There are restrooms onboard.

Special Notes:

Whale watching tours are seasonal and generally only available between mid-December and March. A light jacket is suggested. The watercraft has a restroom onboard. Wear sensible shoes, a light jacket, sun protection and bring a camera.
Minimum age is 2 to participate. Once participants join their tour, they will be required to complete a liability waiver.

Tour timeline may vary to avoid overcrowding, etc.
